This interfaith gathering includes presentations, three half-hour videos, and Q&A time to inform faith communities and others about the dangers and realities of drone warfare. Action suggestions for followup.
Panel Presenters include:
Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. The former president of the National Lawyers Guild and criminal defense attorney is a legal scholar, political analyst and social critic who is editor and contributor to Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral, and Geopolitical Issues.
Lisa Hajjar is a professor of sociology at the University of California - Santa Barbara, with courtesy appointments in Global and International Studies, and Middle East Studies. She is a contributor to Life in the Age of Drone Warfare. Her work focuses mainly on issues relating to law and conflict, military courts and occupations, human rights and international law, and torture and targeted killing.
Lisa Ling is a former technical sergeant in the U.S. Air Force. She is featured in the heralded documentary National Bird, which, according to The Washington Post, is "artful, profoundly unsettling." In an article for The Guardian, Ling noted how little the public knew about the U.S. drone program and its consequences.
Two films produced by the Interfaith Network on Drone Warfare for congregations will be screened along with a half-hour version of National Bird.
Issues addressed include:
Why is the faith community concerned about drone warfare?
What is the effect of drone warfare on drone operators?
